Welcome to the Provost’s website. I very much look forward to working with each of you during the 2016–2017 academic year in your focus on student learning. Beginning year three of the college strategic plan; working on needs defined in the Chronicle Great Colleges To Work For survey; reevaluating our college wide learning goals and the uses of ePortfolios across campus; implementing and continuing development of WCore; and reenvisioning our peer review process will be among some of the most important work we do together this year.  In addition, conversations around faculty workload will be focused in each school recognizing that each of our four school function in slightly different manners.

As we progress through this academic year, please stop by this website frequently for links to the most recent versions of the faculty manual, new faculty handbook, professional development grants/awards opportunities, faculty benefits, forms, travel requests and expense reports, policies, faculty committee assignments, program review schedules, and other updated college policies. In addition, all provost notes are archived on this site.

I am excited for the new beginnings of the academic year. Please do not hesitate to reach out to the Provost’s Office or myself as we can be of assistance.
